The leak reveals that the Samsung Galaxy M12 will be sporting a plastic unibody design. The handset measures around 163.9 x 75.9 x 8.9mm and it thickness increases to 10mm around the camera bump. The handset is fitted with a 6.5-inch flat display that features an Infinity-V notch. As can be seen in the render, the Galaxy M12 has a thick-sized chin. It is unclear whether the phone has an LCD or OLED screen.

The rear shell of the Galaxy M12 has a distinctive dual-textured design. The upper portion has a striped pattern, and the bottom part has a glossy finish. The square camera housing on the rear panel of the device is expected to house four cameras. Below the camera module is an LED flash unit.

The right edge of the Galaxy M12 has a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button. The volume rocker is also found on the same side. The bottom edge of the phone has a 3.5mm audio jack, a USB port, and an external speaker.

In related news, Samsung is working on the Galaxy F12. According to Sammobile, just like the Galaxy F41 debuted as a rebadged Galaxy M31, it is likely that the Galaxy M12 and F12 could be the same handsets with different monikers and colour options. The F12 is rumoured to be backed by a 7,000mAh battery. There is a possibility that the M12 could also be housing the same sized battery.
